Crosland In the news

HoopTee Charities and JCS Join Forces

The John Crosland School is thrilled to announce our incredible partnership with HoopTee Charities! A huge shoutout to Fred Whitfield, the visionary founder of HoopTee Charities, for providing an amazing opportunity that opens doors for our students. This generous donation will pave the way for 4 incoming students in grades K-6 to join JCS for the 24-25 school year. 4 students, who would not otherwise have the financial ability to attend Crosland, will receive three years of tuition support, ensuring they can access the education and support they need to thrive.

Wells Fargo Championship awards JCS funds for Financial Aid

Wells Fargo Championship supports many Charlotte charities every year and we are honored to be chosen as a recipient! This year the #WellsFargoChampionship donated a record of nearly $2.5 million to local charities and have raised $30 million since inception in 2003.

Thank you Wells Fargo Championship for your incredible support!
